2017 Saffron Fields

Saffron Fields sits in the middle of the marine sediment, solitary atop a unique saddle at 400 feet above sea-level in the Southeastern corner of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. This forms a natural amphitheater which traps heat throughout the growing season, creating unusually robust, dark and brooding Pinot Noir.

125 cases produced.

"The 2017 Pinot Noir Saffron Fields Vineyard offers a darker style in its plummy, blueberry fruits as well as notes of graphite, damp earth, and spice. It’s beautiful on the palate as well with medium body, remarkable purity, and a clean, chiseled finish. It’s another stunner that should benefit from a year or two in bottle."

"Lots of plum, violets, dried herbs, and forest floor notes emerge from the 2017 Pinot Noir Saffron Fields Vineyard. Made in a pretty, medium-bodied, elegant style, it has rocking complexity, silky tannins, and as with all these 2017s, beautiful balance..."
